Track Name: Birds
The bond is broken
And the light that was leading me
Is gone and I have no choice but to seal the memories
That were keeping this boat afloat
Everything must go
Still the birds will find me waiting for the dawn
Should we mourn or should we celebrate?
Stolid souls we ain't gonna break
The image in your head is not the thing itself
The birds will find me telling myself
That you can't put it on a shelf

Everything must go
Still waiting for the dawn
Everything must go

Abandon hope
It'lll be easier to live
Never mind the echoes
Nothing gotta give
Despite the truth I know
Everything must go
Still the birds will find me waiting for the dawn

Everything must go
Still waiting for the dawn
Everything must go

Everything must go
Still waiting for the dawn
Everything must go

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away from everything I've done wrong
From everything
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away from everything I've done wrong
Just take me away!
Away!

Everything must go
Still waiting for the dawn
Everything must go
Track Name: Crossroads
Many years you were there for me
When I screwed things up
I knew that the world couldn't bring me down
Cause I wasn't alone cause I had you
Now its time to say goodbye, oh, say goodbye
Can you recall those times when I was stuck in dismay
Feeling sorry for myself
You saved me and I swore that I would do the same for you
You know it's true

And I know for sure we'll meet again

We always knew that this moment would come
We are at the crossroads saying goodbye

But I know for sure we'll meet again

You helped me see
Whom I should be
I'd be blind without you

You helped me breathe
You helped me believe
that I should carry on

You helped me see
What I needed
I'm blind without you

You helped me breathe
And I believe we'll meet again
Track Name: I'm Not Over
This is the beginning of the end
Decay when I count to ten
Nothing more but a bad kind of dream
When the walls are closing in

This is the beginning of the end
I mourn for the beautiful intent
It could've turned out right
It should've turned out right

I'm not over
I'm not over
Gonna make a short detour

This is the beginning of the end
Yet what I can't comprehend
Is why this joke is on me
Why is it always on me

This is the beginning of the end
Will the truth remain unsaid?
Sleep tight on the bed that you made
No one cares to see you fade

I will not bend
I will not break
Untill I'm satisfied
I will not bend
I will not break
Erase it from my mind
I will not bend
I will not break
I will not bend
I will not break
And even with this part of me gone
Track Name: Rise
Lift the curtain
Prove them wrong
I still believe
Your star's not gone
It's blinding light will find its way to you

Don't be afraid you're not alone
The mirror cracks
Your doubts are gone
The masks they used to wear all vanished too

Rise up and shine
And never really try to believe
In what they say

A midnight walk is what you need
A moonlit scene
A road that leads to the open doors
Back to everything you seek for

Rise up and shine
And never really try to believe
In what they say
Track Name: Swim With Me
The water's cold
A storm is approaching
Not much of a metaphor this is

Is this the firm ground that I begged for?
Seems to be another reef

Then the wave comes and I know I'll never go back
Can you tie me to the mast so I don't fall from the deck
And if I do, could you

Swim with me, swim with me
I'll never forget
Swim with me, swim with me
I'll never forget again

My clothes are wet I see things clearer
So much clearer than I did
When we were walking hand in hand in the harbor
Watching ships come and go

Then the wave comes and I know I'll never go back
Can you tie me to the mast so I don't fall from the deck
And if I do, could you

Swim with me, swim with me
I'll never forget
Swim with me, swim with me
I'll never forget again

This distorted surface you see
Is the mirror of my soul
And this gale is our fear
That the wind will take control
But our vessel's way too sound
For the storm to swallow
I know someday we'll stand on the ground
Feet in the water so shallow
Track Name: On And On
A subtly painted rooms
No more clocks they won't distrub your sleep
Simple questions are asked
How old are you?
But the answer's never true

How did it come to this
You're the only one who truly knows
Somewhere deep inside
there's a child too frightened to let go

On and on the wheel keeps turning
On and on inside we're burning
On and on we trap ourselves

In subtly painted rooms
No more locks
No, fear's not coming in
No more pain, no more worries

You must've felt so helpless,
empty, broken, hoping he wouldn't leave
You must've felt so let down,
you must've felt so lonely
so lost treading waters way too deep
Alone

On and on the wheel keeps turning
On and on inside we're burning
On and on we trap ourselves in our private hells
Track Name: Black & White
The ceiling said hello
4-30 in the morning
It takes a while to cope with the fear of falling
In the end it all comes down to saying things you will regret

The fight that we've survived
It left scarred inside
It left us hiding from the light
The one that saved me
Or was it then that I lost hope
I know you're better than the one I knew before

if you're lonely
And fear keeps you up all night
Please remember
Life's not always black&white
Things that scare you
May be better than they seem
Just remember
You should think twice before you scream

oh oh oh oh, you still got so much to learn
oh oh oh oh, yeah

The drama beckoned me
The sweet temptation
so little did I know of vivid celebration
of life and hate and sex and everything that makes it worth your while

The hurt you left behind
will never really die
it'll keep hiding from the light
the one that saved me
or was it then that I lost hope
I know you're better than the one I knew before

It's sink or swim
A certain situation of life and death
importance and we can't give up
Cause then we'll never be able to be
Where we wanna be
at the seams
it feels
like pressure's too much to stand
I know you've come too far to just bend
It's time you learned the truth (that)
you will never know
everything you want to
Track Name: Pandora's Box
Deep down inside of you and me
There's a beast no one gets to see
The darkest corner of your mind
My guilty mind

Rest assured you'll get inside
Only to wake in the middle of the night
Screaming shaken by the truth
Letting emotions loose

I am, I am, I am, I am,
I am the only one who knows
What's behind the closed doors

Give me a chance and you will see
There's a better part of me
The one that's fighting mister Hide
every night

All I need is one more chance
One more kiss and one more dance
So seize your fire, let it go
Just let it go

Pandora's box
Once opened cannot be closed again
Pandora's box
Oh how I wish you'd understand
Pandora's box
Is more than just a myth
Pandora's box
Is deep down inside of you and me

Deep down inside of me
The beast that no one sees
Track Name: Pretence
We are who we pretend to be
A wiseman once said
So choose caredully who you wanna be

One step and you are done
Is it all about simply having fun, no!
That's how we come undone

Why do you pretend to be
Somebody I don't know
Why don't you pretend to be
Somebody that I love
I don't wanna see
Some stranger take your place

You are who we pretend to be
Your mask becomes your face
And unmistakably
you're who you wanna be, who you wanna be

This is always the hardest part
A bad choice gets you off the ark
A unicorn lost in the flood

Choose who you are
Choose who you wanna be
Track Name: Should Have Known
I knew it couldn't last
You're slipping away
Another ghost of the past
With nothing to say
It's time to gather the stones
The fruits of the lie
She's getting ready to go
And I'm ready to dive

How did it come to this
Were we misled?
Our cover's blown to bits
Tears unshed
Days are growing cold
So much for the lie
She's getting ready to go
And I'm ready to die

On the cliff where wind don't blow
Face to face with the unknown
I'm getting ready for the dive
(Death lags behind)
Love's on a killing spree
A terror hanging over me
You came to steal my final straw
I should have known

How did it come to this
Die

Hey, what's it gonna be?
Say, what's in it for me?
I've never been good at living someone else's dreams
When the very fabric of existence is tearing up at the seams
This time is no different

Should've seen this coming
The dumbest thing that I've ever done and
The dumbest thing that I've ever done and
The dumbest thing that I've ever done and
The dumbest thing that I've ever done and
I'm done and I'm leaving
I'm done
Track Name: Waste
Tell me please
Is it want you want?
Sticking to the plan that the mob's come up with
Washing your dreams down the drain

You care
Still you don't care enough to stand up for
Your own future

I know
I used to be like you but now I'm
Writing my own story, oh
Behold
I'm no prophet but I want you to
See what it means to be free

This life is a highway to me, yeah

Can you swear
That you're satisfied
With the way you live your only live
'Cause it seems to be a waste

There's just no chance
That you got no doubt
It's never too late to change it all

I know
I used to be like you but now I'm
Writing my own story, oh
Behold
I'm no prophet but I want you to
See what it means to be free

This life is a highway to me, yeah

You're wasting your time
You're wasting your lives

This life is a highway to me, yeah
